Commitment and Self-Reflection

  • Getting a tattoo is a commitment. Some folks would go into greater depths in reflecting before putting that permanent ink on the layers of their skin. The decision stage of what design to put onto their skin involves a process and purpose, but there are also those who impulsively get one because it looks pretty. In this case, the commitment sometimes is short-lived and they end up having a tattoo removal or patch up. Regret should be the last thing in mind when getting inked. 
  • This list practically aims to help you reflect on your choices. Thankfully, most of the communities around the world have slowly accepted this as personal liberty these days. So, you don’ have to worry about being judged.
  • By the time you consider this, be proud and worry no more, what others have to think about you. Besides, skin art just makes you different not a bad person.
